Wednesday Words: Am Reading: Whereafter

A little dusk-time book sharing today!

I'm so glad to get back into a little reading, and I've been waiting to open this book up for months!

This is the third book in Terri Bruce's Afterlife Series, of which I've been a fan since the release of the first book the first time. Here is the book blurb:

How far would you go to get your life back?

Stuck in the afterlife on an island encircled by fire and hunted by shadows bent on trapping them there forever, Irene and Andras struggle to hold onto the last vestiges of their physical selves, without which they can never return to the land of the living. But it’s not just external forces they’ll have to fight as the pair grow to realize they have different goals. Irene still clings to the hope that she can somehow return to her old life—the one she had before she died—while Andras would be only too glad to embrace oblivion.

Meanwhile, Jonah, worried about Irene, desperately searches for a way to cross over to the other side, even if doing so means his death. His crossing over, however, is the one thing that could destroy Irene’s chances of returning home.

Too many obstacles, too many people to save, and the thing Irene most desperately wants—to return to her old life—seems farther away than ever. Only one thing is clear: moving on will require making a terrible sacrifice.

I haven't gotten too far into yet, because I started a sensitivity read of a book I can't wait to rave about when it comes out! I wish I could say more! But anyway, now that I'm finally sharing a book for Wednesday Words, let's take a sneak peek into the book. chose page 56.

Andras was on his hands and knees, gasping for breath. Instantly, she dropped to his side, steadying him as his body tried to vomit up the water he imagined he had swallowed.

I cannot wait to there!

What are you guys reading right now? How is NaNoWriMo going?

I've actually taken a reading break after going through all of the IWSG entries, but ready to dive back in again.
